Open Your Heart in Bismarck

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - Hundreds of volunteers helped sort food this morning, and there is still time for you to Open Your Heart.

The Open Your Heart campaign provides Christmas dinners for families in need in Burleigh County. More than 400 households have been selected to receive more than a week's worth of food. Two hundred and eighty-five families were also taken clothes shopping this year.

"We just have great support. We have people that have been doing this for fifty years, and they've carried on to their children and grandchildren. We see young families come out here, pushing strollers, carrying a box," said Rick Kramlich, Chairman for Open Your Heart.

Friday night everyone is welcome to come to the east side of the event center and help fill baskets. Saturday morning people can help deliver them to the families that have already been selected to receive the food.
